I met Kim in 1991. She became my girlfriend shortly there after. So we go way back. Over half our lives at this point.
Then in 1999, on this day, we tied the knot. It was merely a formality at that point. I really didn’t consider a life without her. So we decided to drag everyone that wanted to go to Hawaii for a 1 week celebration and wedding, followed by another private Honeymoon week. What a trip! 4 islands in total. Lots of time with family and friends. And a great start to a new life together to top it off.
So if you did the math — today is our 10 year anniversary. The years are starting to add up! Honestly, for the first few years, I think I still celebrated our dating anniversary. Then at one point, I mentally swapped the dates and thought our dating anniversary was our wedding date. But over the last few years, I got my calendar cleared up and never forget this monumental day.
Kim and I celebrated this anniversary early with our big trip to Costa Rica earlier this year. But then last week, Kim sabotaged our dryer (I think) and we had to purchase a new washer and dryer that will be delivered tomorrow. So given the traditional tenth anniversary gift of “tin/aluminum“, I think that fits quite nicely. (Just don’t tell her the modern chart says diamonds! That would be an expensive fucking dryer!)
We were married prior to blogs and digital camera — oh, its been that long! So I dug up a few scanned copies for your enjoyment.
Kim, I love you and I am looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together!
